   Jun-05-20 I Livshin vs P Romanovsky, 1956
 
Caissas Clown: 1-0. Why ?
 
   Jun-04-20 Morozevich vs H Hamdouchi, 2001 (replies)
 
Caissas Clown: Fairly simple for a Thursday.Like some others,I too went for 33.Bb4 which also seems to work , though more slowly.Whether Bb4 or a6 , the N on f3 is doing a sterling defensive job.
 
   Feb-05-20 K Petzold vs A Dreev, 2008 (replies)
 
Caissas Clown: Stale.Mate: <What was the point of 27. Bf5 ? TIA>. Saves the Bishop. White would've preferred to move the Queen , but she must been exhausted.
 
   Nov-18-19 Geller vs Karpov, 1976 (replies)
 
Caissas Clown: <schnarre>: I'm embarrassed to admit that until today , I did not know he'd ever played it. But there it is in the Chessgames.com database : 5 wins,12 draws, 2 losses. Two of the wins,he was 10/11 years old,two were in the Melody Amber Rapid,one in a simul.
 
   Oct-07-19 Tal vs P Mejic, 1974 (replies)
 
Caissas Clown: Tal the Mejician.
 
   Aug-29-19 Polugaevsky vs A David, 1994
 
Caissas Clown: Fascinating game. Was Lev undone due to underestimating his opponent?? Or was it more likely his illness,which took him from us the following year?
 
   Aug-29-19 A David vs Das Arpan, 2018 (replies)
 
Caissas Clown: Dear oh dear! I was in "Monday Mode",so wasted a few minutes trying to make 26.Qxh7 work i/o 26.Nxh7! Once I fixed that,I thought it was fairly simple for a Thursday puzzle.
 
   Aug-08-19 Serper vs I Nikolaidis, 1993 (replies)
 
Caissas Clown: I have just watched a wonderfully precise endgame by Capablanca. Instructive,sure - but I would much sooner watch a game like this.Absolutely electric!
 
   Jul-30-19 Kamsky vs Karpov, 1996
 
Caissas Clown: Gettin' old - took me over 5 minutes to realise why 20...Rxc3 would have been a blunder.
 
   Jul-22-19 I Nepomniachtchi vs Nisipeanu, 2019
 
Caissas Clown: Difficult to believe that a GM could play so poorly.I know this Anand vs Gelfand, 2012 is a disaster,but that was due to bad calculation,rather than terrible strategy.
